Best Practices for Architecting Robust BGP Routing Policies – The Global Carrier

What actually makes good routing policies "good"? The telecoms industry has mostly focused on teaching each other how to implement BGP features in their networks, but there has been very little dialogue on how to design robust policies. Many global carriers do not even educate their customers on how to use and take advantage of them. In this webinar, NTT Communications and the Global IP Network will offer a conceptual model to look at routing policies, offer terminology to help discuss them, and analyse routing policy design patterns and best practices. NTT Communications will also share its experience from creating and deploying large scale complex routing policies in a carrier IP network that you can use to sharpen up your routing policy or even build one from scratch. ABOUT THE SPEAKER: Shawn Morris leads a global team that is responsible for all the software and systems that manage and operate the Global IP Network (GIN), a tier-1 backbone that covers the Americas, Europe, Asia and Oceania with a single autonomous system number (AS2914). His responsibilities include the development and testing of staff and facilities, focused on qualifying both hardware and software for the entire network. Shawn also oversees the development team responsible for the GIN configuration tools. Shawn has more than twenty years of experience in the IP networking industry. He was previously a member of the IP engineering staff at Verio until the acquisition of Verio by NTT Com in August 2000.
